About Colliers Launches

Colliers Launches are a family owned and operated Thames boat hire company.

It was established back in 1976 by Arthur Collier Senior a freeman of the river Thames with the purchase of the ‘Bay Queen’ a 43 foot wooden launch which ran on a scheduled service from Richmond. From these simple beginnings of scheduled day trips for tourists it developed into boat charter for private functions.

Since then Arthur due to his entrepreneurial skills has built an impressive fleet of four passenger boats, and a commercial dry dock for boat repairs.

At the same time as developing the business Arthur Collier apprenticed and licensed his three sons Danny, John and Arthur Jnr as Watermen and Lightermen. They have all contributed to the development of the business, making it what it is today a highly successful Thames boat hire company which prides itself in providing a friendly, value for money service.
